Spirit Airlines is expanding to Miami International Airport as early as October.

The company is flying from MIA to 30 domestic and international destinations beginning on Oct. 6.

"The procedure for starting service at MIA requires that we make a public filing outlining the routes we intend to operate before we can obtain gate and counter space at the airport," Spirit said in a statement. "Flight times and pricing will follow once we complete the coordination of space at the airport, and we may adjust our final schedule based on the outcome of that process."

Spirit is the largest airline operating out of Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport and with departures expected to reach 100 per day for the first time in July.

With the addition of MIA, Spirit will serve seven of Florida’s ten largest airports.

"I proudly welcome the expansion of Spirit Airlines to Miami-Dade County, which is more amazing news for our residents, our tourism industry and our economy," Miami-Dade Mayor Daniella Levine Cava said in a statement. "Welcoming one of America’s leading airlines that is headquartered right here in South Florida makes this announcement even more special."
